Just a little History

    Way back in 1968 I came across a little beat up ACE book titled Daybreak 2250 AD. Between being a nine year old watching Apollo missions on the TV and reading this book I was hooked. I started reading any science fiction I could get my hands on. I kept that book somehow (along with others) and in 1992 I moved to a new home in the state of Florida. I discovered that I was only about twenty miles from the great lady. I wrote her a note and dropped it in the mail thinking that I would never hear from her. I received a note back saying “here is my number – give me a call”. I must say I was shocked, and when I called her I got invited to her house. I spent about four hours talking with her about all sorts of topics. She was showing me some of the Cover Art Masters she had hanging around the house. I mentioned that I just couldn’t find a copy of Witch World and she led me to her private library. Without my asking, I parted from her house with a dozen signed books of various titles. I really can’t think of any other person who would be so generous and kind to a total stranger.

    And so I drive my wife nuts collecting her books, and spending many hours on the computer obtaining and compiling data. Now it’s time to share some of this data with the world. I have identified over 330 non-fiction titles, over 1100 known English prints of these titles and several hundred Non-English prints. Of course I am always looking for additional items and will add them as I luck upon them.

    In the bibliography I attempt to list any time that a story appears in a new publication, is released by a new publisher or changes format (ie: Hard Cover to Paperback).

    I will not make the claim that this is a complete list of her work but it is the most comprehensive list of any that I have seen on the internet. I have included books edited by her and over 750 various pictures of Cover Art. I have included Non-Fiction items written by Andre such as magazine articles or introductions / forwards which appear in books by other authors. Also listed are articles about Andre or reviews of her books. However the Non-Fiction items are listed in separate appendices and do not receive the same attention as her fiction works.

So peruse and enjoy – or better yet - go read a book by Andre Norton (LOL) ~ Jay Watts
